TODDLERS- 2 year olds

Our Toddler class is reserved for children who are 2 years old. The focus is on five key developmental areas:

  • Sensory and perceptual development
  • Self-help skills
  • Physical and motor skills
  • Social and emotional growth

The first few years of your child’s life are crucial to the development of personality and intellect. This is a period during which learning takes place at an accelerated pace. We provide the sense of security and loving care that toddlers need to thrive during this stage of intense learning.

Since toddlers are especially committed to achieving independence, our teachers provide responsive individual attention as your child deals with positive experiences as well as frustration. Our curriculum takes advantage of the rapid growth of gross and fine motor skills at this stage of development.
